Thread: Suburban lift

  1. #1

    Default Suburban lift

    i have a 98 GMC Suburban. i wanna put a lift on it and just have a few concerns. i wanna put 35's on, will a 4 inch lift be enough. or do i need to go to a 6 inch lift? and with either lift do i need to modify the driveshaft and/or steering components. thank u

    I believe you will need a 6" lift to clear 35's without cutting. Not for sure on the older styles, but that's what's required for the newer ones.

    '01 Chevrolet S10
    -custom air intake
    -painted dash
    -footwell lights
    -Strange Performance stickers
    -exhaust coming soon
    -Xplod Head Unit with iPod connectivity
    -12" Sony Xplod woofer
    -Majestic 400 watt amp, bridged

    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you.

    Cool Suburban lift

    I have a 1996 K1500 with a Rancho 6" kit with 35s. I had to trim the front bumper a little. Than I installed some chrome molding where we cut the bumper and it looked factory. I run a 10" wide rim.

    Cool Suburban lift

    I forgot to mention on my last post that you do not have to make any drive shaft or steering changes. The Rancho kit comes with everything needed.
